When only the very best will do, the breathtaking new VAIO Z Series of ultra-mobile notebook computers from Sony is your ultimate travel companion.
The slim, exquisitely styled new Z Series doesn’t compromise on mobility, looks, connectivity or stamina. What’s more, it delivers lightning fast performance to zip through your business computing needs, saving precious time and boosting your personal productivity.
Alongside up to 6GB of RAM to handle your applications, the Quad solid state drives can write data in parallel on a maximum of four SSDs, processing at incredible speeds. Smaller and lighter than conventional HDD arrays, it will tear through file transfers up to 6.2x faster (compared with HDD 5400 rpm) to save precious time when every second counts.
Graphics performance is often sacrificed on ultra-portable notebooks, but not with the new VAIO Z Series. The integrated NVIDIA® GeForce® GT330M graphics chipset with 1GB GDDR3 VRAM makes light work of media-rich documents, presentations, HD movie playback and more. A new Dynamic Hybrid Graphics System intelligently optimises performance to match your workflow. As an alternative to manually selecting graphics modes, AUTO mode detects usage conditions, switching automatically between STAMINA and SPEED modes to suit the task at hand.
Weighing below 1.45kg, the all-new VAIO Z Series is crafted to the highest standards in weight-saving yet durable carbon fibre and aluminium for maximum portability and robustness. Enhancing the notebook’s beautiful design, the tough yet light palmrest is precision-machined from a single slab of aluminium.
Whether you’re fine-tuning a presentation or enjoying your personal media collection, you’ll get a better picture with the Full HD 1920 x 1080 (model VPCZ11Z9E) VAIO Display Premium. Measuring 13.1”, this high-efficiency screen with LED backlighting offers exceptional brightness, clarity and contrast. An exceptionally wide colour gamut of 96% Adobe RGB coverage ensures rich, vibrant reproduction of Full HD video and still images.
Extreme performance and mobility doesn’t come at the expense of business-class comfort. A built-in ambient light sensor detects surrounding light levels, automatically switching on keyboard backlighting for accurate typing while dimming screen illumination to save power as necessary.
For extra convenience and peace of mind, a front panel-mounted ASSIST button gives one-touch access to VAIO Care. This easy-to-use new programme helps maintain, diagnose and troubleshoot your VAIO with just a few clicks.
